WHAT IS COLD LASER THERAPY?
Modern laser technology has been revolutionized for many different areas of patient care, including aesthetics, pain management, wound healing, and more. At The Wellness Institute of Dallas, our team employs advanced technology that can be used in different ways to help women and men achieve a rejuvenated look, reduce inflammation, address minor injuries, or even close up stubborn wounds for individuals with diabetes.

How is Cold Laser Therapy Performed?
After your consultation is conducted and your treatment plan is finalized, we will lead you to a treatment room at our Dallas, TX facility, where your therapy will begin. The treatment is performed using a small handheld device that emits a low-level laser. Depending on your treatment plan, the device will be held close to a single treated area for 30 seconds to a few minutes. If one or more of your treated areas is near your eyes or face, we will give you protective eyewear — so your vision is not impaired. The low-level laser energy will pass through your skin to your tissues, where the regeneration and inflammation-fighting processes will begin. While some patients may feel relief after one session, it will typically take several sessions at The Wellness Institute of Dallas to see ideal results.
WHAT CAN COLD LASER THERAPY HELP WITH?
Our Dallas, TX office utilizes the Avant LZ30 to target many issues, including tissue damage, musculoskeletal injuries, and neurological problems. This technology could also be used for aesthetic and skin rejuvenation purposes, as well as inflammation management, pain reduction, and wound healing. Since the energy levels used during this treatment are so mild, you won't feel any sort of heating sensation from the device. When the light energy from the laser is focused on your tissues, it is absorbed and stimulates a regeneration process.
What Should I Expect Following Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy, is a noninvasive procedure performed at our Dallas, TX facility, which means you can return to your everyday routine following a session at The Wellness Institute of Dallas. In some rare situations, you may experience swelling or discoloration at the treatment site. It is also a good idea to avoid strenuous activities affecting the treatment area so you don’t risk reaggravating a wound or pain. If your treatment plan requires multiple sessions at our office, we will remind you of the next scheduled treatment or schedule it before you leave.
